Hey folks, as some of you may know, Autonomy & Solidarity
developed as a tendency within the New Socialist Group over the
past year or so... Meetings were held informally to build a
tendency from October of 2002 until the tendency became
official in September of 2003. The tendency decided to leave
the NSG at its founding meeting in November of 2003. It has
taken us since then to get our shit together and to be able to
formally and openly launch ourselves as a new grouping,
although the website and statement below are still very much
in a state of being worked on...

If you want to get a sense of what seperates us from the NSG,
than check out http://auto_sol.tao.ca/?q=taxonomy/page/or/3
to read some of our documents. These documents provide some
of our analysis as to where we differ with many in the NSG on
questions of the revolutionary organization, Gauche Socialiste,
and what is meant by Socialism from Below.
Enjoy the website.

Autonomy & Solidarity Lauches Website ==> http://auto_sol.tao.ca
Autonomy & Solidarity is an exploratory network and political
space for socialists, anarchists and anti-capitalists who
believe that revolutionary transformation will come from exploited
and oppressed people self-organizing from below and not
from the top down organizing of any state, party or union
bureaucracy. Our name comes from our support for the
struggles of workers and the oppressed, and from our belief in
building forms of solidarity that address all forms of
oppression and exploitation.

We are active in various anti-poverty, anti-war/occupation,
feminist, union, queer liberation and anti-racist movements and
coalitions. We also organize discussion groups, public forums and
skills workshops, and produce materials and resources to
develop and share our politics. Our goal is to develop theory and
practice collectively in order to extend our individual
capacities and to make better contributions to the movements in
which we are active.

We seek to develop the anti-capitalist practices and networks that
emerged through our anti-globalization, anti-war and
anti-poverty movements. We support direct action and mass
struggle, and are committed to decentralized, non-hierarchical
forms of organizing. We are also internationalists and want to
make connections with progressive and revolutionary
movements around the world.

Developing transformative anti-oppression politics is central to our
politics. We support the autonomous struggles of
women, people of colour, gays and lesbians, bisexuals and
transsexuals, transgender and intersex people, young people,
people living with disabilities, and indigenous people inside the
Canadian State and around the world. We also seek a
politics of responsibility for white people to challenge white
supremacy, for men to challenge masculine privilege and
patriarchy, and for those identifying as heterosexual to challenge
relations of heterosexual privilege.

Autonomy & Solidarity seeks to initiate a wide-ranging process of
political debate and elaboration. We are supporters of
revolutionary pluralism, a political and organizational practice that
views non-sectarian debates and discussions amongst
revolutionaries from various backgrounds as healthy and
generative. Autonomy & Solidarity provides us with a political
network through which to explore the questions and debates that
have been raised within the new anti-capitalist movements.

Autonomy & Solidarity is comprised of collectives and activists
based in Toronto, Sudbury, Hamilton, Guelph, Vancouver and
other locations. We look forward to hearing from other radicals
who share our political perspectives and who are interested
in participating in common projects or in becoming part of our
network of collectives.
